The Haiti issue in security is not the protection of the individuals.

The issue is if the PNH has the capacity to control a general riot and the stability of the country.

A positive response will facilitate the growth of economy life. Up to now, this guarantee is offered by

If we want to control Haiti crime, we need to go after the Lavalas party with its gang leader, Jean Bertrand Aristide.

Did we have this level of crime before Aristide decide to tell his gang members to go after those who have. The problem of crime will not be resolved without putting Aristide in Jail or deport him back to South

Here are the hotspots in Port-au-Prince.

High-crime zones in the Port-au-Prince area include Croix-des-Bouquets, Carrefour, Bel Air, Martissant, the port road (Boulevard La Saline), urban route Nationale#1, the airport road (Boulevard Toussaint L'Ouverture) and its adjoining connectors to the New ("American") Road via Route Nationale#1.

If we continue to tackle the issues related to Drug pushers, Deported, gangs, people involved in prostitution, child trafficking, we will control crime in Haiti.

There is the phenomenon of some political leaders arming the young, desperate youth in deprived neighborhoods, like Cite Soleil, Delmas.

This is the best news so far coming out of Haiti.

If there is no kidnapping, I will visit Haiti.

If they want to see more Diaspora to come and spend money, all we are asking for is security.

So far good job Martelly.

Slowly, we will build the country back and become less dependent on foreign

Hopefully we will give credit to where credit is due. Once Lucmane Delile took office as Chef du Parket de Port-au-Prince, he went directly after the kidnappers.

The phrase if I can remember correctly is that as a message to the kidnappers: You stop the business of kidnapping of "Fouyon Twou Mete Tet Ou. I think this improved placement in the 2013 Global Peace Index is a result of the great people working in Law enforcement in Haiti.

Good job guys and keep up the good
